On Tuesday’s show: Memoirists

During MPR’s pledge week, we’re playing some of the best Daily Circuit conversations you might have missed:

9:00 World-renowned chef Marcus Samuelsson talks about his memoir, “Yes, Chef“. He and Kerri discuss food, family, and why he needed to tell his story without any omissions.

10:00 Want to get over every past trauma, fear, hang-up, obsession and hurdle in your life? Just ask author Augusten Burroughs. We play back his conversation with Kerri about his new book “This is How.”

Here he is on Big Think:

11:00 Kerri’s conversation with novelist Deni Bechard about his memoir “Cures for Hunger.”

    A lot happens between 9 and noon – unless it’s pledge time. Then it’s reruns. Is there an election coming? Weeks of topics and guests preparing us for the debates, followed by no in-depth coverage the day or week after a “game changing” debate? Really? : ) How can you spend three hours of pledge breaks telling us how relevant and in-depth the show is, while producing no new shows? I don’t plan to support mpr again until there is a clear change/improvement to programming between 9 am and 3 pm.
